from Friar Richard Rohr - on the Spiral of Violence:

I hope that this short introduction to the three sources of evil as the spiral of violence—1) the world's agreed-upon systems, 2) individual sin, and 3) the demonic legitimization of oppressive and destructive power—can be a primary tool for the rest of your life, to help you discern what is truly good and what is often evil. And remember, the proper sequencing is important: if you nip the disguise of evil in the first stage, the next two largely lose most of their power to fool you.
